And I've always rolled my eyes a bit at other nursing covers. No offense, other nursing covers.
But my childhood best friend, Katy, had a baby not long ago and asked me for a refresher course on how to tuck a baby blanket into your bra to create an impromptu nursing cover. Both of us were of the opinion that regular nursing covers were practically a billboard advertising your activity and not worth the trouble or diaper bag space, and although the blanket trick doesn't look good (at all), it is effective enough.
I've got to say though, I think Bizzy Babee nursing covers have finally gotten it right. I was hopeful when I clicked on the link and it looked discreet, comfortable, and easy to use. They sent one to Katy for review and we met for lunch to check it out. The color was a really pretty deep plum, the fabric was light, breathable and of nice quality and workmanship, and the cut was fantastic. Katy was wearing a long sleeved white shirt that day and when she put the Bizzy Babee nursing cover on, it looked like a normal fashion accessory. I know that seems highly unlikely, and I would hesitate to believe it if I hadn't seen it myself, but even Katy agreed that it looked nice on and she's a fashion designer. (Shoes, but same difference. She knows what looks good).
|See? That looks good.|
Man, it turns out I had a surprising amount to write about it, but the Bizzy Babee nursing cover really is wonderful in its simple sophistication. I guess I'm just overly excited that there is an option for nursing moms that isn't total dork city. And maybe I kind of miss nursing sometimes. Not all of the blanket/bra strap tucking and leaking and all of that, but you know, the rest of it, and I would have felt slightly more glamorous in one of these. Maybe I need one anyway, I could sneak candy into the movies and snuggle up in my seat! Like a cool person's Snuggie!
But anyway, one of you can win one. How nice is that? US friends only, sorry, especially for you Canadians who are among my favorite people in the universe.
